    I have a desktop with Windows XP Pro. Power went off when computer on. When power came on, I restarted the computer, but before it finished, the power went off again. When power came back on, said had a problem and gave choice to start windows normally (didn't work) or select last known configuration. This gave me message that windows\system32\config\system is corrupted so I put the windows disk in and went into the recovery console and did a chkdsk /r. It gave me" the volume appears to contain one or more unrecoverable errors" IS MY HARD DRIVE TOAST? Or is there anything I can do?

    The next step is the check the hard drive as follows:

    Check Hard Drive for Errors using one of the options below:
    if you have a BIOS based system
    - run Seagate Seatools for DOS (Long Generic test). Boot from disk to run

    if you have a UEFI based system
    - run Seagate Seatools for DOS (Long Generic test). Boot from disk to run it (will have to disable SecureBoot and enable CSM/Legacy mode).

    - connect the hard drive to another working computer, and run Seagate Seatools for Windows (Long Generic test).
